Nick proposed to Cindy in the middle of a tall grassy field in Southern England during their backpacking trip through Europe. "It was an overcast day, and right after I said 'yes', the sky opened and sunlight broke through the clouds," Cindy recalls. She notes that while nature clearly agreed with their engagement, they already knew they were meant to be after they met through an online dating site and hit it off on the first date.
The two became husband and wife in a beautiful outdoor hilltop ceremony at the McMichael Art Gallery Collection. The couple's colour choice of fuschia and violet bouquets and bridesmaids dresses complemented the lush greenery of their chosen venue.
Right before she was about to walk down the aisle, Nick surprised Cindy with her good friend Karen, whom he flew in from Switzerland to celebrate their special day. When she saw Cindy, she gave her custom-made diamond earrings as a wedding gift from Nick.
The couple was delighted to incorporate quirky ideas and DIY projects into their summer wedding. Reception tables were decorated with potted herb plants that Nick grew himself, while their guests enjoyed Cindy's homemade french macarons in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.
